Skoda’s Vision for the future

September 13, 2017

Skoda is taking a giant leap towards a digital future with the Skoda Vision E study, which is celebrating its European premiere in Frankfurt.

The first electric concept car in the Czech company’s history offers autonomous driving at level 3 and raises connectivity to a new level. In addition to a screen on the dashboard and a central touch-screen display, each passenger also has their own screen. Numerous details such as vehicle data and entertainment can be accessed via these touchscreens.

In each door, there is a phone box that charges smartphones inductively. At the same time, the box serves as an interface: the individual touchscreen displays allow passengers to access personal settings, data and information conveniently.

The design of the Skoda Vision E study shows key elements of the company’s new design language for electric vehicles. Compared to the version that celebrated its world premiere in Shanghai, the front is now even more distinctive.

The car’s unique features include counter-opening doors and four individual rotatable seats. Thanks to the long wheelbase of 2.85 metres, the interior is extremely spacious and comfortable.

Electric engines with a total output of 225kW (306bhp) drive all four wheels. The level-3 automated Vision E has an impressive range of up to 310 miles and a top speed of 112mph.

On motorways, the concept car can accelerate, steer, brake and avoid obstacles without driver input. The Car Park Autopilot automatically manoeuvres the vehicle to empty spaces.

The Vision E is charged inductively.
